Hey all...we are closing in on the end of summer and we are moving a bit backward with the pandemic. Trying to simulate "normal life" this summer finds us recently backing up, starting to mask again, maybe taking more precautions that we thought vaccination did away with. Even with Delta running its course, we have so much to embrace. As women in cybersecurity, we've realized ways to stay connected throughout the pandemic with technology. We've gathered, and "met" virtually, and still supported one another. I think I've met more people in last year and a half than I usually do at in-person events.
This month, we are a bit late publishing. Apologies. I was going to call this issue "Late to the party..." but I opted for "The more things change..." as I've been thinking about how even though the world's been turned upside down due to the pandemic, our core work at the CyberWire remains the same even though many of our work practices have dramatically changed. Our team has grown and become closer during this time even though few of us have seen each other IRL. We maintain our monthly virtual happy hours and often incorporate games and have a lot of fun.
The CyberWire is very thankful for this community and our team would love to hear from you. If you'd like to share, drop us a line and let us know how has the pandemic changed you? Will you be keeping any practices that you, your company, groups you belong to, have started over the last 18 months? Are there things you have come to appreciate during the pandemic that you hope to maintain moving forward?
Had some great experiences or attended worthwhile events that would interest our Women in Cyber community? We’d love to hear about them. Please email us and we may feature it in our next newsletter.
